My husband and I are interested in this tour. Is the airfare from Hangzhou to Beijing included in the price? If not, what would that cost? Are any changes possible? We thought we might like to visit Tongli instead of Hangzhou. Is returning to Beijing by a train a possibility? We are interested in the dates 17 April to 21st of April, 2014. IS this possible? It is just the two of us traveling, but we would be interested in joining other people if there is anyone interested in this time. Thank you for answering my questions. I look forward to hearing from you. Jeanette Cleary
